The Rose Beach of the Island of Budelli


The fabulous Rose Beach of Budelli Island

It owes its name to the sand color, rich in coral fragments, shells of shellfish and tiny granite bits.

Its fame is due, in addition to its beauty, to the film “Deserto Rosso” by Michelangelo Antonioni, who in 1964 used it to set up some scenes in the Budelli arena.

The beach, and the whole island, located within the National Park of the Archipelago of La Maddalena, geomorphic nature, constitute an invaluable natural resource, rich in flora and fauna endemics. The surrounding area also offers a spectacle of great natural interest.

Starting from Palau, towards the archipelago of La Maddalena, you can admire the island of Santo Stefano, characterized by the fort of San Giorgio and Napoleon, and you can reach the island of Spargi, a small settlement of shepherds where  Cala Corsara beach is located. Further north, at the entrance to the Boulevards of Bonifacio, you will arrive on the island of Razzoli, uninhabited, but home to a small agglomeration of houses.

The archipelago seabed, called the “cetacean sanctuary”, houses a large number of cetaceans, including dolphins.
